Happy Hour: 2003 Peter Franus Cab Sav

Yesterday afternoon, Yum and I were lucky enough to find ourselves in the company of a bottle of Peter Franus Cabernet Sauvignon. Sadly, we were a bit disappointed at first. With a tinge of harshness the medium bodied wine was good, but had Yum saying, "I'm not going to go run out and buy this bottle." However a mere 15 minutes later - as we moved onto a second glass - our thoughts began to change. The wine had some time to breathe and this glass was smoother, with a deep richness that allowed me to note and embrace the underlying earthy aromas. Paired with a perfectly cooked lamb chop, this wine would be absolutely luscious. Give it a try for yourself - this Cab Sav grows on you in all the right ways. It's on sale now over at this fabulous little website called Radcru. They sell hard to find wines, up-and-coming cult labels, and overall just fun bottles featuring a new one everyday. With a limited amount of each bottle, the wines are quickly snapped up by those in the know.

Mmm I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for this and save it for a dark winter evening. To me there are few things finer than a glass of dark red wine on a cold, snowy evening :)

This happened to me not too long ago. A local red was highly recommended to me and after opening it, I was not at all impressed. By the second glass though, the wine had breathed and it was sensational! I shouldve been patient and let it breathe from the beginning since it was fairly young. You live and you learn!
